I did that too, with wasabi!!!!! The chef made a beautiful flower shape from the wasabi paste- and before anyone could tell me not to- I wasn't familar at first- I said oh isn;t this beautifull and then popped the whole thing in my mouth! Yowza!!! I lost my breath- sweat poured down my forehead- my ears burned- I thought I would pass out! When I came back to awareness, everyone was laughing at me. I must have been quite a sight!

Oh my, how harsh, joe777cool. Nicole should be able to relax and sit at a booth- I am sure she would spend more than three dollars(brunch is more than that) and even if she doesn't-so what? I do understand what you are saying- but that can't fly all the time- are people really that cold?Maybe Nicole sends a lot of friends and associates to this diner- or maybe she and her husband frequent the diner regularly. There is a lot more to business than "get em in, get em out". Have you ever heard of business goodwill?
Maybe the owner or waitstaff could offer a two person table or something a little more solitary, to accomodate Nicole, honestly, in the whole scheme of things it is not such a big deal.

Your mom's weird cooking ... and other stories? (recipes encouraged)

My mother was not a great cook- although she thought she was- I was in the 2nd grade and having dinner at a friend's house when I realized that food didn't have to be dry and mostly burnt.

We had jelly and cream cheese sandwiches, too. They were my favorite, especially with strawberry jam!

Chipotle Corn Soup

I make a corn and roasted poblano pepper soup which is similar to this. I can't wait to try this one.
